Conflicts: drivers/net/wireless/ath/ath9k/Kconfig drivers/net/xen-netback/netback.c net/batman-adv/bat_iv_ogm.c net/wireless/nl80211.c The ath9k Kconfig conflict was a change of a Kconfig option name right next to the deletion of another option. The xen-netback conflict was overlapping changes involving the handling of the notify list in xen_netbk_rx_action(). Batman conflict resolution provided by Antonio Quartulli, basically keep everything in both conflict hunks. The nl80211 conflict is a little more involved. In 'net' we added a dynamic memory allocation to nl80211_dump_wiphy() to fix a race that Linus reported. Meanwhile in 'net-next' the handlers were converted to use pre and post doit handlers which use a flag to determine whether to hold the RTNL mutex around the operation. However, the dump handlers to not use this logic. Instead they have to explicitly do the locking. There were apparent bugs in the conversion of nl80211_dump_wiphy() in that we were not dropping the RTNL mutex in all the return paths, and it seems we very much should be doing so. So I fixed that whilst handling the overlapping changes. To simplify the initial returns, I take the RTNL mutex after we try to allocate 'tb'. Signed-off-by: David S. Miller <davem@davemloft.net>
2013-06-19cfg80211: hold BSS over association processJohannes Berg2-5/+14
This fixes the potential issue that the BSS struct that we use and later assign to wdev->current_bss is removed from the scan list while associating. Also warn when we don't have a BSS struct in connect_result unless it's from a driver that only has the connect() API. Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>
2013-06-19cfg80211: require passing BSS struct back to cfg80211_assoc_timeoutJohannes Berg1-3/+5
Doing so will allow us to hold the BSS (not just ref it) over the association process, thus ensuring that it doesn't time out and gets invisible to the user (e.g. in 'iw wlan0 link'.) This also fixes a leak in mac80211 where it doesn't always release the BSS struct properly in all cases where calling this function. This leak was reported by Ben Greear.

2013-06-19nl80211: use small state buffer for wiphy_dumpJohannes Berg1-94/+116
Avoid parsing the original dump message again and again by allocating a small state struct that is used by the functions involved in the dump, storing this struct in cb->args[0]. This reduces the memory allocation size as well. Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>

2013-06-19nl80211: fix attrbuf access race by allocating a separate oneJohannes Berg1-2/+9
Since my commit 3713b4e364 ("nl80211: allow splitting wiphy information in dumps"), nl80211_dump_wiphy() uses the global nl80211_fam.attrbuf for parsing the incoming data. This wouldn't be a problem if it only did so on the first dump iteration which is locked against other commands in generic netlink, but due to space constraints in cb->args (the needed state doesn't fit) I decided to always parse the original message. That's racy though since nl80211_fam.attrbuf could be used by some other parsing in generic netlink concurrently. For now, fix this by allocating a separate parse buffer (it's a bit too big for the stack, currently 1448 bytes on 64-bit). For -next, I'll change the code to parse into the global buffer in the first round only and then allocate a smaller buffer to keep the data in cb->args.

2013-06-11{nl,cfg}80211: make peer link expiration time configurableColleen Twitty2-1/+9
If a STA has a peer that it hasn't seen any tx activity from for a certain length of time, the peer link is expired. This means the inactive STA is removed from the list of peers and that STA is not considered a peer again unless it re-peers. Previously, this inactivity time was always 30 minutes. Now, add it to the mesh configuration and allow it to be configured. Retain 30 minutes as a default value.

The change to use atomic_inc_return() for assigning the wiphy index made the first wiphy index 1 instead of 0. This is fine, but we all habitually type "phy0" when we're testing, so make it go back to 0 instead of 1 by subtracting 1 from the index. Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>
2013-06-04cfg80211: fix potential deadlock regressionJohannes Berg1-15/+8
My big locking cleanups caused a problem by registering the rfkill instance with the RTNL held, while the callback also acquires the RTNL. This potentially causes a deadlock since the two locks used (rfkill mutex and RTNL) can be acquired in two different orders. Fix this by (un)registering rfkill without holding the RTNL. This needs to be done after the device struct is registered, but that can also be done w/o holding the RTNL. Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>

2013-06-04cfg80211: separate internal SME implementationJohannes Berg7-448/+335
The current internal SME implementation in cfg80211 is very mixed up with the MLME handling, which has been causing issues for a long time. There are three things that the implementation has to provide: * a basic SME implementation for nl80211's connect() call (for drivers implementing auth/assoc, which is really just mac80211) and wireless extensions * MLME events for the userspace SME * SME events (connected, disconnected etc.) for all different SME implementation possibilities (driver, cfg80211 and userspace) To achieve these goals it isn't necessary to track the software SME's connection status outside of it's state (which is the part that caused many issues.) Instead, track it only in the SME data (wdev->conn) and in the general case only track whether the wdev is connected or not (via wdev->current_bss.) Also separate the internal implementation to not have callbacks from the SME events, but rather call it from the API functions that the driver (or rather mac80211) calls. This separates the code better. Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>
2013-06-04cfg80211/mac80211: clean up cfg80211 SME APIsJohannes Berg3-61/+101
Do some cleanups in the cfg80211 SME APIs, which are only used by mac80211. Most of these functions get a frame passed, and there isn't really any reason to export multiple functions as cfg80211 can check the frame type instead, do that. Additionally, the API functions have confusing names like cfg80211_send_...() which was meant to indicate that it sends an event to userspace, but gets a bit confusing when there's both TX and RX and they're not all clearly labeled.

2013-05-25cfg80211: simplify and correct P2P-Device scan checkJohannes Berg1-10/+7
If the driver for some reason successfully finishes scanning while in p2p_stop_device(), cfg80211 will still set it to aborted. Simplify this code using the new 'notified' value and only mark it aborted in case the driver didn't notify cfg80211 at all (in which case we also leak the request to not crash, this is a driver bug.)

2013-05-25cfg80211/mac80211: use cfg80211 wdev mutex in mac80211Johannes Berg2-42/+10
Using separate locks in cfg80211 and mac80211 has always caused issues, for example having to unlock in places in mac80211 to call cfg80211, which even needed a framework to make cfg80211 calls after some functions returned etc. Additionally, I suspect some issues people have reported with the cfg80211 state getting confused could be due to such issues, when cfg80211 is asking mac80211 to change state but mac80211 is in the process of telling cfg80211 that the state changed (in another way.) Signed-off-by: Johannes Berg <johannes.berg@intel.com>
2013-05-25cfg80211: vastly simplify lockingJohannes Berg13-444/+115
Virtually all code paths in cfg80211 already (need to) hold the RTNL. As such, there's little point in having another four mutexes for various parts of the code, they just cause lock ordering issues (and much of the time, the RTNL and a few of the others need thus be held.) Simplify all this by getting rid of the extra four mutexes and just use the RTNL throughout. Only a few code changes were needed to do this and we can get rid of a work struct for bonus points.

2013-05-24cfg80211: Allow TDLS peer AID to be configured for VHTJouni Malinen1-2/+9
VHT uses peer AID in the PARTIAL_AID field in TDLS frames. The current design for TDLS is to first add a dummy STA entry before completing TDLS Setup and then update information on this STA entry based on what was received from the peer during the setup exchange. In theory, this could use NL80211_ATTR_STA_AID to set the peer AID just like this is used in AP mode to set the AID of an association station. However, existing cfg80211 validation rules prevent this attribute from being used with set_station operation. To avoid interoperability issues between different kernel and user space version combinations, introduce a new nl80211 attribute for the purpose of setting TDLS peer AID. This attribute can be used in both the new_station and set_station operations. It is not supposed to be allowed to change the AID value during the lifetime of the STA entry, but that validation is left for drivers to do in the change_station callback.
